Ok. Haven't checked scum yet, but if I don't get an offer soon on the phase 1 clone, i'll probably return him. Cool figure, but don't need him thaaaat bad.
Nothing of note today -stockwise??
Picked up a not even close to mint $15 TIE Bomber at a local WM. One left, PM for location if interested. I just wanted one to open.
Also, I saw the Jedi Speeder at Monrovia TRU on Saturday. It was the first time I spotted it, not sure if it is widely distributed yet.
Stashed an At-rt driver, aotc clone, and senate guard at a Target in the valley. PM for location. This target also had Weequay guards, 1 Lando general, and another at-rt driver & odds and ends
now where are my Transformers?!?!?!?!!?
Beaumont WM had some new figures (finally!). I saw General Lando, Ceremony Han, R5-D4, Tatooine Luke, Fi-Ek Sirch, Senate Guard, Weequay Skiff Master, and Dagobah Pilot Luke.
Han and R5 didn't interest me in the slightest. Were the figures still in the $5 range, Luke might have (both of them). At $9, though, yet another Tatooine Luke and a Pilot Luke without gloves both seem like ripoffs.
General Lando looks like a major step backwards from the previous one. The articulation may be better, but the head is crap. Again, $9 is too much.
I had Fi-Ek, Senate Guard, and Weequay in hand. But then I noticed the only Weequay was opened, and his weapon(s?) gone. I put him back. And, at that point, two AOTC resculpts didn't seem nearly as interesting for the price, and put them back, too.
I wasn't totally empty-handed. Ross next door had a Rogue Squadron comic pack for $5.99 (passed on it, too, simply because I finally decided I have too dang many Rebel pilots) and the GIJoe MARS Trooper packs on clearance for $4.99. I did not pass on them, even though I have a full-on army of them at this point.
Tommy, close your eyes.
At Wal-Mart in Palm Desert I got the Cyberverse Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ironhide, and Sentinel Prime.
I really like these little guys (they are larger and much more articulated than Legends)!
They are fragile and good for collectors, not so much for kids.
BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.
Culver City TRU had bupkis. The funny thing is, I checked on the poorly-stashed jedi turbo speeder and it's STILL THERE! Lazy crew!
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
oh yeah, how stupid of me to forget - big shout out & thanks to Crunchy for the Target stash a couple days ago. Love the at-rt driver. Still have some guys stashed at that Target. (chk earlier post) PM if interested.
Another shout out to my friend who hooked me up with a TVC bespin Luke on Wed. He's not on SSG though unfortunately
btw, i returned the AOTC clone at wally a few days ago too
